Mr. Renaud Hinse, President and Chief Executive Officer of Abcourt Mines Inc.

At the first closing announced by press release dated August 22, 2013, the Company issued 7,190,000 Units (and not 719 Units as indicated by mistake in that press release) for an amount of $503,300 and 2,916,647 Flow-Through Shares for an amount of $247,915. At this second closing, the Company issued 230,000 Units for an amount of $16,100 and 376,000 Flow-Through Shares for an amount of $31,960. In aggregate, the Company issued 7,420,000 common shares and 3,710,000 warrants allowing the purchase of 3,710,00 common shares and 3,292,647 Flow-Through Shares pursuant to that private placement, representing a total subscription amount of $799,275.

The proceeds from the Flow-Through Shares will be used by the Company primarily to further advance the Elder Gold Mine project in the Abitibi region in the Province of Québec and the proceeds from the Units will be allocated to working capital.

The private placement is subject to customary conditions and the final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. The securities issued and sold will be subject to a four month hold period under applicable securities legislation.

This press release does not constitute an offer to sell, or a solicitation of an offer to buy, any securities of the Company and shall not constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in any jurisdiction in which such an offer, solicitation, or sale would be unlawful.
